Ansoft Unveils v12 of Maxwell, RMxprt v12 for Electromagnetic Devices

Ansoft Corporation (NASDAQ: ANST) announces Maxwell® v12 and RMxprt(TM) v12. Maxwell is the company’s electromagnetic field simulation software used for the design and analysis of 3D/2D structures, such as motors, actuators, transformers and other electric and electromechanical devices common to automotive, military/aerospace and industrial systems. RMxprt is a specialized software program dedicated to the design of electric machines.

Ansoft Maxwell v12 electromagnetic field simulation softwareMaxwell v12 includes a new 3D electric transient solver that solves time-varying electric fields due to a transient disturbance, such as lightning strikes on electrical equipment. The new version also is equipped with advanced model healing capabilities. This productivity feature will automatically identify and resolve potential problems with geometry imported from popular CAD systems and streamline the solution process.

Additionally, the Ansoft next-generation desktop architecture has been added to the Maxwell 2D solvers. This intuitive, easy-to-use interface offers many new usability enhancements, including advanced 2D modeling, powerful scripting capability and enhanced post-processing.

RMxprt has been upgraded with a new capability to solve three-phase non-salient synchronous machines, automated project setup for Maxwell and a new wire library allowing motor designers to study the effects of various wire types of a design prior to physical prototype creation.
